Freddie Woodman is a talented keeper with the potential to start for some clubs in the Premier League. The 23-year-old is currently on loan at Swansea City and has performed well between the sticks in the second tier of English football. His big saves in critical games are a key reason why Swansea City are only three points shy of a place in the play-offs.
Woodman would be a solid backup to Martin Dubravka, but the youngster deserves a chance to make the most out of his career and be a primary keeper elsewhere. For that reason, Woodman should be sold, and the club can raise his price tag based on his stellar form in the Championship this season.
Rob Elliot is a decent keeper who split time as a starter for Newcastle United with Karl Darlow during the 2017-18 campaign. Elliot has been with the club since 2011, but only has 52 Premier League appearances under his belt during that time. Seeing that he has not featured in a single game over the last two seasons, it is clear that he has no chance of competing for regular minutes at St. James’ Park.
At 33, Elliot is approaching the final years of his career, but he can still be a key player for clubs in lower divisions. Amanda Staveley should sign off on this decision and place the Republic of Ireland international on the transfer list.
